What teamwork looks like

 Great day at Binky Sunday.  Had about 20 people show up to help cut out lots of quilt kits.
 I'm not sure how many kits we got cut out because most of them were taken home to be sewn and will be returned in the next couple of weeks to be quilted and donated to the familes affected by the Boles fire near Weed, Ca.
 We had three Accuquilt Studio fabric cutters going for almost 3 hours!
 These three girls cut an entire bucket of Christmas fabric for stockings for out Veterans and military members who are currently serving.  They will be sewn together another day and will be filled with goodies to say thanks for your service!
 Great teamwork here rolling and cutting.  Look at that huge pile of perfectly cut stockings!
 I love that I can trust kids to not cut off a finger and get shapes that are perfect every single time.
 Lots of scraps were created that were then cut into 4 1/2 inch squares and 2 1/2 inch strips that will be made into quilts as well.  Nothing goes to waste around here.
 Everyone was working and 4 buckets of fabric got sorted and cut.  That sounds like a lot, but I have another 100 buckets in the shed that need some work.  I should have one of these work days every week :)
 Everyone was impressed with how easy the Accuquilt Studio cutter is to use.
 And everyone was looking forward to the next work day.
 We take helpers from the very young to the very young at heart.  A little bit of time, a little bit of fabric and wanting to help other people and lots can get done.
